Despite being forced out of power,in November 2017 following pressure from the ruling ZANU PF and the military, former Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe is refusing to vacate the official residence, sources said Thursday.
According to APA, Presidential spokesperson George Charamba told the privately run Daily News that the former Zimbabwean strongman has not removed his personal property and valuables from Zimbabwe House, more than four month after he resigned.
“The last time I checked, President Mnangagwa was still to access Zimbabwe House and the former president was still clearing his things from there,” Charamba said.
The failure by Mugabe to move out of Zimbabwe House means that Mnangagwa is still staying at his private residence in Harare.
According to the paper, security officials fear that Mnangagwa’s private residence is not very safe and not befitting for the leader of the country.
He had been in power since April 1980.
